It All Boils Down to Potatoes

I love potatoes. There, I've said it. They are probably my single-most favorite food. In fact when I play that little game about "if you could only have one food for the rest of your life...what would it be?"

It's potatoes---hands down! You've got boiled, mashed (or as some in the South say---creamed), scalloped, au gratin, potato salad, baked, French Fries, fried---and many others with fancy names. There's so much you can do with potatoes. Actually, potato chips are probably my least favorite. I only have those with a sandwich---I'm not a snack out of the bag kind of gal---unless you are talking DIP. Now that's a whole different ballgame!! Bring 'em on!

The reason potatoes are on the mind is because I haven't had any in about 6 or 7 weeks. I hadn't really noticed until today. For over a week now, I couldn't think of anything I've wanted to eat. Nothing really sounded all that good. I kept feeling like I've been having a craving for a burger when it wasn't the burger at all. It was about the French Fries. I don't eat French Fries very often, so they are a treat. Still, I haven't had them yet.

Instead, I put a roast in the crock pot today with potatoes, onions and carrots. That's when it hit me. It's been potatoes all along!!

Oh, and I wouldn't mind a "venti, iced-black tea, shaken with 3 Equals, please!" Really missing Starbucks!!


  1. Such a versatile vegetable: hoping you really enjoy that roast!

  2. We're just about to eat carrot, roast and potatoes from the crock pot. I'm a huge fan too..but you probably guessed that. Roast is my favourite kind of potato, but I love them all

  3. you didn't mention roast potatoes in your list :0 They are my fave - cooked in the oven in the roast meat juices. yum. I hope your crock pot potatoes hit the spot :) x
